BEAUCHAMP, THOMAS D. (?–?). Thomas D. Beauchamp, early settler, moved to Texas in 1832 and attended the Convention of 1832 as a delegate from the Snow (Neches) River District, now in Tyler County. He served on a committee to petition the state of Coahuila for a law permitting the use of the English language except in matters directly pertaining to government. In 1838 Beauchamp, a single man, was issued a headright for eight and one-third labores of land in what is now Falls County.
